At the moment, I'm running a 4000 lipo (SMC), which is thinner (20.5mm high), so it gives you more options.
With that, I'm running a Manutech plate for both weight and balance... it gets it to within a few grams of perfect side to side weight balance. But the plate adds 2.5mm to your battery height, so you can't use the 5000's with it.

Then, to make the ROAR weight limit, I'm still adding on another 60g of weight, using the XRay bolt on weights... about 15g at each corner of the chassis (in front and behind the battery, and same on the other side. For these weights, you just have to make a counter-sink hole and you can add/remove weight as you like.

My next evolution will be an attempt to make 5000's fit. With SMC and TP coming up with 40C 5000 Lipos, it'd be nice to have the extra punch. I've got some tungsten weights coming in, which should fill in the battery slots. That will replace the Manutech plate and should provide more clearance for the 5000's.

I have a question about my rear diff pulley, it is wobbling side to side and I don't think that is normal. Is there a way to correct that or do I need to replace it(I cant my my scre driver small enough to check) let me know, thanks

If you mean that you can move the pulley from side to side then thats normal, its just how a diff works. Once the car starts moving, the pulley will straighten itself out and run true.

just wanted to ask what's the effect of inboard front toe-out in the TC? out of the box it comes with 2.5deg toe-out right? that's a bit much compared to the past touring cars i've used...

Its technically called front arm sweep. And 2.5 is ok if your running a spool. I prefer using the 1.5 block though and if using a one way on carpet 0 seemed to feel the best

Hi Guys
First of All I want to say Well Done To you All Cyclone Drivers...
I've recently got an WCE from my mate which is almost Brandnew just to try and see what is Cyclone feels like on track...
But as an Xray Driver I'm very disappointed with the overall part quality of the car...
Rear diff is the Worst I've ever mate...
I can't imagine how does an Cyclone S owner feels LOL
Is there any place to find setups from 2008 events I need a good starting point for Low-med and Medium Grip indoor Carpet Track
Thanx in advance for your help and advices

I just gotta ask - define "worse" diff ever?? I've built them all and if its built right - its just as good, if not smoother than the xray diffs...I know they are known for breaking the diff screw, but that doesn't sound like your problem with the diff...I'd try rebuilding it and go from there

jagg is right, the pro-diff is an improvement, but I wouldn't say its a necessity...I'm running the standard diffs in mine (mod, VTA, stock) and haven't had any problems other then a rock in the gear

As far as setups, give this link a shot

ok. thanks! so if i'm running spool i'd be better off running the stock 2.5deg "front arm sweep"?

was running mod 4.0 the other day with 1.5deg front arm sweep (didn't change it after running stock with a one-way)... snapped the front drive shaft after powering out of a corner. could this be the reason for it?
